    The Rambam (Seifer haMitzvos, lav #302; Hilkhos Dei’os 6:5-6) understands the prohibition of hating oneself in one’s heart to be specifically in one’s heart. Hitting or yelling at him is not a violation of this sin. But he is understood two ways.

    the prohibition of hating oneself SHOULD it not be, the prohibition of hating a fellow Jew?

It is interesting to note that in interpersonal mitzvos, the Rambam refers to other Jews as “qetzaseinu — our part”, so that here he is literally giving the prohibition of one part of the Jewish People hating another part…
